    Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. (WBA) is an American holding company headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois that owns Walgreens, Boots and a number of pharmaceutical manufacturing, wholesale and distribution companies. The company was formed on December 31, 2014 after Walgreens purchased the 55% stake in Switzerland-basedAlliance Boots that it did not already own. Walgreens had previously purchased 45% of the company in 2012 with an option to purchase the remaining shares within three years.

    Under the terms of the merger, the new company was organized into three divisions: Retail Pharmacy USA (Walgreens), Retail Pharmacy International (Boots), and Pharmaceutical Wholesale, incorporating Alliance Healthcare. The new holding company began trading on the NASDAQ on December 31, 2014.

    The combined business has operations in over 25 countries. Walgreens had formerly operated solely within the United States and its territories, while Alliance Boots operated a more international business.

    In October 2015, Walgreens Boots Alliance published its fourth quarter earnings report. Net sales in fiscal year 2015 increased by 35.4% to $103.4 billion, and net earnings rose to $4.2 billion.

    Drugstore chain Walgreens Boots Alliance ($WBA) may come under pressure after reporting second quarter earnings that matched estimates but on weaker than expected sales.

    There was selling pressure over the past week due to news regarding Amazon possibly entering into the pharma space, but notice it was on average volume. Longs are not selling. These were traders and recent buyers selling on the news.

    It is currently a triple bottom play with massive support @ 80.00. Technicals are telling me a breakout above the 88.00 level is imminent with that resistance level being tested sometime around the end of June. See how the 20-day SMA consistently bounces off of the 200-day. In order for that pattern to be maintained the trend reversal must take place now since the SMA is delayed and the bounce off of it will occur while the breakout is happening.

    In looking at the stochastics, they have begun to uptick from their oversold conditions, further confirming a trend reversal to occur now. Three days into the week and the weekly candle is currently a doji with a slightly longer upper wick. This doji is supportive of the trend reversal but I would like to see the bottom wick get a bit longer while closing out around current levels. I am expecting WBA to test below 80.00 Thur. or Fri. but to not close below it.

    If WBA closes below 80.00 Thur. or Fri. my sentiments will change dramatically.

    We should finish out the week right around the current price of 80.50. I am expecting the buyers to jump in Tuesday after the 3-day weekend as they will most likely be doing so for the markets in general. This will help drive the push off the 80.00 support and begin the ascent to major resistance at 88.00 throughout the month of June.

    Target price for 07/03/2017: 90.00
    Target price for 08/01/2017: 95.00
    Target price for 09/01/2017: 105.00

    These are my opinions only! Good luck!!

    Top-line growth is the metric that makes Walgreens look good now. The company's revenue of $124 billion over a last 12 months is formidable, and the 12% spike in sales last quarter looks fantastic. Analysts believe that growth will continue and the company will reach $132 billion in sales in 2018.
